like the nra and goes directly to the people. you know , otherwise, we are always in a sense, outgunned by these special interest groups, i has managed to talk directly to the people, get the pulse of the country. that's what got him re-elected. every prediction was, you know, there's too much money, too many special interest groups. the republicans are going to win. he went directly to the people through his technology, through the media, when he talked about fairness, he says either we increased access for everyone or we increased access for 2%. it was reasonable. it was sober, it was common sense it appealed to everyone. so i think that president obama will stay true to his doctrine of fairness and that's what 98% of our country wants. >> deepak chopra, thank you for coming on, enjoy the inauguration. >> thank you, don. >>> president obama's rescue of the american auto industry put our next guest back to work. and this weekend, she is an invited guest at the inauguration. meet the 5-passenger ford c-max hybrid. when you're carrying a lot of weight, c-max has a nice little trait, you

americans, republicans, nra members, agree with the very basic answers, which are the magazines and the automatic weapons and so on. but we are very, very impassioned people who believe the second amendment is a bible. one more quick point. two different versions of the second amendment were passed. one passed by congress had a capital letter for state and militia. the one passed by the state had a lower case. so it was a compromise right from the beginning. two very different interm tashzs of what that second amendment means. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> there are two designers anxiously awaiting to see whether michelle obama wore his or her dress tonight. she had about 15 designers who send her designs. >> it will be an american designer. >> they do not know who it will be, and they will see when the world sees. the president and the first lady will be hitting the dance floor for the first dance in a couple hours. first, beyonce today with an absolutely beautiful -- >> that was the best rendition of the national anthem i have ever heard. ♪ o say, can you see by t
